1969: Reflection & Reimagination

About the Exhibit

1969: Reflection & Reimagination features artwork from the Mark H. Reece Collection of Student-Acquired Contemporary Art in celebration of the collection’s 60th anniversary. The exhibit was curated by Wake Forest University students with the support of their advisor, Jennifer Finkel, Acquavella Curator of Collections and includes twelve of twenty-eight pieces of art purchased by Wake Forest students in New York City in 1969.

This will be the first time the Mark H. Reece Collection has been on display in Wake Forest, North Carolina, the founding place of Wake Forest University and represents an important new partnership between the Wake Forest Historical Museum and Wake Forest University’s Office of University Art Collections.
